This is the offices of the National Trust of NZ, but we had heard one could have a look att the hallway and front room. This proved true. We reported to the sign for visitors and received a very enjoyable 15 minute tour of the spaces open to the public. The ceilings in the main front room were impressive -... More

After a long wait on Waitangi Day to view the house and we were able to see the upstairs area too, we found it a little disappointing. Originally built for the Hannah Family when it would have been a remarkable home, then a hostel for Govt post office employees after which it fell in to a state of disrepair. Luckily... More

After a heavy lunch at Boulcott Street Bistro, we strolled down the narrow Boulcott Street and found Antrim House on our right. It is a beauty in architecture, but unfortunately jammed up & confused by other neighbouring buildings. A cheerful lady guided us through the building with detailed information. It was a 15-minute tour. The most striking feature to me,... More

The house is quite lovely and entry is free, but it is the headquarters of Historic Places Trust, so most of the building is staff offices and not open for public viewing. It's worth popping into if you are walking by but don't make a special trip to see the interiors.

Worst Historic place setting I've ever seen. Offers nothing but silence and screeds of text. Basically, I don't care.
